New Richmond School District Reviews

I liked New Richmond School District because I felt like they were very school oriented and cared about all students' academic success.
This school continues to provide amazing opprotunities to all students. They offer a welding program that has college transferable credits. This is a great opprotunities due to the lack of welders in the career field today.
The teachers are skilled and the curriculum prepares most students for college. However, many students are allowed to fall through the cracks because administration often seems more interested in preserving the image of the school than providing resources to help rather than punish students.

Although it may appear to be a very large school, I have found that the staff that fill NRHS are helpful and attentive, even with all of the students. With enjoyable classes, and understanding teachers, NRHS can be a great oppurtunity for plenty of kids. However, it appears that many students give up or dont try as hard as they should, resulting in poor grades and poor attitudes. The school is kept clean, classes are orderly, and the resources available are topnotch. I just wish there were more available languages aside from Spanish, so the community could be educated in more than one culture and language.
Very good learning environment, very many resources are available to you. No matter what your needs are they will accommodate to you. They have classes for everyone from agriculture, foods, shop, and all the main academics.
New Richmond School District offers education beyond the average in all areas of interest. If you like science you can take non-mandatory classes such as AP Biology, AP Chemistry, AP Physics, Anatomy. You can also further your education in Social Sciences, Music, Foreign Language, Mathematics, English, and more hands on classes like wood shop and welding. The only down side about New Richmond is that the only foreign language offered is Spanish.
Please consider looking elsewhere for a good school district; this isn't one of them. Starting with a 4K program rife with corruption and misuse of public funds, your child won't be off to a good start. The school busing company has no accountability for their operations.

Of course, there are exceptions where some teachers are doing their best, however, the majority are simply riding it out to retire or have their entire family working for the district. Too much nepotism.

The track of preparation seems to not be towards a college education. Do not consider WITC as a college--it is a vo-tech, teaching welding and "packaging".

This seems to be one of those districts where you feel like an outsider if you move into the district. In other words, if you didn't grow up here all your life and have family ties going back generations, you are treated as a lower-class citizen and shunned.
I love the variety of classes and opportunities for personalized interests provided to each student. Teachers care a lot about the student’s education.
The teachers are wonderful, and very supportive! They help you to achieve your plans for your future! The schools offer a wide variety of clubs/activities to partake in if you choose including drama, sports, music, foods, art, language, film and much more!
Reading buddies at elementary where an older classroom pairs up with a younger classroom fosters an environment where the older kids make the younger kids feel safe. Opportunities both academic and sports related are vast. Its a community where it seems parents want to see all kids succeed.
Pretty great, the only thing that sucks is that you kind of are surrounded by hicks who don’t care about school. Besides some of the unfortunate students, it’s a pretty great district.
New Richmond focues on academics and really pushed their students there... but it was studies that were basic materials and did not prepare the students for higher education.
I can NOT say much good for this district. Moved to new Richmond for 9-12 grades. I had NO friends, was shunned away by staff, and was restricted from sports. ( I was in sports every season before transferring). Graduated with a 3.4 GPA. Applied to college scored low on ACT’s and the colleges placement tests. ( I have always tested well, not so much on homework assignments). Cost me an extra year of college tuition.
lost my job and had to move back with my mom. My daughter started in the new Richmond school district. She was identified and having reading deficiencies by the head start( not run by the district) They had no title one program and didn’t have time for her. It was horrible. Moved to Roberts, WI. Got her in title one,after school tutoring, and reading support not to include reading support in summer.
Summary: no support, lots of bullies, daughter was reading at kindergarten level after moving in the second grade and having repeated 1st grade.
New Richmond always puts the students first. They make sure that everybody is ready for college by the time they graduate. Having a variety of classes allows students to explore what classes they enjoy to find a possible career path.
New Richmond School District provides a good education to its students. As a student, I believe the school is changing in response to reviews to improve. Because of the location of the school, changes are limited in some ways, but the school attempts to include all types of students and makes an effort to correct issues. The district has tried to include students in new policies, but it is clear that this is new for the district, because student advice is quickly dismissed. Overall, the district is still good at teaching its students.
I had a great experience in through the honors program but if in special services, you are taken out of the classes you did well in which brings you behind with everything. Great place to grow up with football and hockey and it was safe to be out at night.
We weren't allowed to have pajama day or do a lot of fun school stuff together because of all of the strict rules; even though things in years past worked well and didn't need to be regulated.

Great teachers, and some of the best technical and agricultural classes in the state. The only lack luster aspect is the science department is a little small and poorly managed, so some of the AP Science classes are poorly taught.
New Richmond was an amazing district to attend. The high school is still new with state of the art facilities. The graduation rate is high and anybody who goes looking for resources and help will find it.
Everyone that works for this school is truly wonderful. It's nice to be able to go to school everyday, knowing that there is always someone there to help me succeed.
